Hi Fred,

I believe the windows environment is available under your linux
filesystem as /mnt/c so you should be able to access any Windows

The Linux filesystem is under your Windows AppData\Local.

I installed xming, a minimalist Windows X server, and ran the linux
Firefox.  Videos work OK, but I don't have sound.

But it certainly seems functional enough to run GNU APL.

Maybe I'll play with it later.
